At Wear Eyewear, our Chicago eye doctor and team takes great pride in offering you the best in eye and vision care. With two convenient locations in Chicago and Orland Park, we're your one-stop shop for all your eyewear and optometry needs. Whether you're in the market for new corrective lenses or are seeking treatment for an eye or vision condition, our skilled and experienced team is here to help you.
There are a number of common eye and vision conditions we diagnose, treat, and manage here at Wear Eyewear. For instance, near-sightedness and far-sightedness are two of the most common vision problems we see—and we can correct these issues with the right prescription lenses. Astigmatism (curvature of the eye lens) is another common vision problem we diagnose and treat with prescription lenses or specialty contacts.
In addition to vision problems, there are numerous ocular conditions our team is trained to spot and treat in our office. For instance, we see many patients who come in with dry eye, a condition where the tear ducts in the eyes don't produce enough tears to keep the eyes properly lubricated. When this occurs, the eyes can become very irritated and itchy. We're able to treat this in our office with a variety of possible options, ranging from eye drops to specialized contact lenses specifically made for dry eye.
Glaucoma is another eye condition we check for each time you come in for a comprehensive eye and vision exam. Specifically, glaucoma refers to a condition that results from excessive pressure building up in the eye and eventually affecting the optic nerve. If left untreated, glaucoma can result in permanent vision loss. This is why we highly recommend annual eye exams, so we can be on the lookout for possible signs of glaucoma and provide treatment as soon as possible.
Other conditions we commonly see and treat include:
If you've been experiencing changes in your vision or eye health, don't put off seeing an optometrist. The sooner you wait, the more difficult treatment can become.
